1  Re: Fancy Knickers Swap GALLERY! in The Swap Gallery by norianai on: March 10, 2007 07:49:40 AM
My partner meimei recived her knickers a while ago, so I thought I would post some pictures.

These are the ones she sent me originaly:

Just boyshorts, with lace edging in mint green and light pink.

She told me that I could hack them up and take the lace off if I wanted, and I tried, but it just wouldn't work, so I decided to work with it.

The first pair is my absolute favourite.  I dyed the pink ones red, and then chopped up the sides and did a lace up style, like a corset.  And then on the front I painted one of my all time favourite quotes.  And then I added random rhinestones on the font and a little rhinestone heart on the back.  

So now to pictures....

For the second pair, I had an idea to make them completely crazy.  We had just gotten a bunch of really cool leis in at my store, so my thought was to completely cover the kinckers with flowers.  But because of the time it took to do the first ones (waaaay longer than I thought.....who knew hammering in eyelets was so difficult....) and with the thought I would like to her two wearable panties, I decided to just add a couple of flowers.

So here they are...



My partner said she loved them, so I was happy.  This was such a fun swap.  I was telling my friend about this swap, and I showed her the knickers before I sent them and she loved them so much, she has asked me to reconstruct some knickers for her for her birthday!  

Anyways, great swap guys!

So here are the two wondeful matchboxes I've received from alteredmommy and BabyBubba.  Thanks so much guys!  This was an awesome swap.  It's absolutely amazing how much stuff can be crammed into such a small space.

From alteredmommy:

I absolutely love the Frida Kahlo sticker and the Day of the Dead skull bead!  Thanks so much!

And from BabyBubba:

The carrot button and the glass ladybug are my favourites.

Thanks for being such great partners!

5  Day of the Dead Cross-Stitch in Needlework: Completed Projects by norianai on: March 10, 2007 07:18:50 AM
So this pattern was posted by xladyluckx in a pattern disscussion thread a while ago.  As soon as I saw it I totally fell in love.  It doesn't hurt that all I've been hanging out with only people from Mexico lately, and they are all slowly converting me...lol.  Anyways, I finished this about three days after the pattern was posted.  I stitched my little heart out all weekend.  For me this was pretty much the perfect pattern.  All bright colours.  None of those stupid half-stitches.  No back-stitching.  And it's designed in easy-to-finish blocks, so immensely gratifying.

Thank you so much for the pattern xladyluckx!!

So I finally got my camera up and working, although it still doesn't work great, but I did get some pics of the great ATCs I got.  Unfortunately the pics don't even come close to doing them justice.

This is all the ATCs I got, plus a sample of the ones I sent out.

And then here they all are by themselves.

From tristitia:

From Chesyre:

From Megyn:

And then this is what the ones I sent out look like.  I used a different origami paper for each.  It says geisha and it has a tiny paper crane glued the front layer.  This was my first time making ATCs so I was greedy and wanted to keep the first one I ever made for myself so I actually made 4 for this swap.  Three for my partners and one for me.

So that's it.  Sorry about the crappyness of the photos.

I had a great time in this swap!  Thanks everyone!

7  My new, fancy, multi-coloured dress!! (Image Heavy) in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by norianai on: September 03, 2006 09:17:22 PM
I found out that I had not one, but two weddings to go to at the beginning of August.  My cousin was getting married as was one of my best freinds.  These are both very special people to me, so I wanted to look my best for the weddings, and that meant a new dress!

I was very inspired by IamTheShelbster's beautiful dress she posted a couple of months back, and decided to try her painting technique myself. 

I was originally going to do the dress in purple and green only, but then I found out those were my friends wedding colours, so I decided to add some more in, and I actually like it better this way.

I started making the dress like three months ago, but because it's me, and I'm such a good procrastinator, I didn't actually finish the dress until about 15 mins before we left for the church for my friend's wedding!  I really have to thank my mom....she was doing the hem for me while I did my hair and makeup...she was a lifesaver.

I originally wanted to do the dress freestyle on a body form, but my mom talked me into using a pattern.  I'm not the best person to use a pattern cause I get frustrated really easily, plus finding a pattern that will fit me properly is IMPOSSIBLE!  I can't remember the pattern I used, but it required extensive alterations, but I really like the way it turned out.

So enough of me blabbling, and on the dress.

This is me and my friend Char at the wedding.

And here are a couple of more pictures that I took after getting home that night.

And because I spent all that time making this dress, I had to have the accessories to go along with it.

My necklace:

And my hairpins, made out of flowers from a Hawaiin lei:

I'm so excited to have a fancy dress....now if I just had somewhere else to wear it..... Wink
